  • 10:00 Community Presentation: Preventing Infrastructure Configuration Drift with Pester and PowerShell by Donny Lang, Sr. Systems Administrator at Plexus Corp (@DonnyLang1)
    It’s easy to conform to best practices and vendor recommendations when you first deploy a system, but how about once it’s in production for a while? We’ll take a look at Pester, a unit/integration testing framework, and how it can help you get a handle on your entire infrastructure stack to combat configuration drift and unauthorized or undocumented changes. Along with the basics, I’ll show you how to operationalize the Pester tests to make them useful, and provide periodic reporting and dashboard views of the test results.
